Here is the question and the answer. Which process is NOT shared by eukaryotes and prokaryotes? A. DNA synthesis precedes spindle formation during division B. Each daughter cell receives half of the maternal DNA C. Glycolysis provides ATP for cell use D. Oxidative phosporylation may provide ATP for cell use Answer: A There is no spindle formation in prokaryotes (bacteria) because bacteria do not use the process of mitosis to reproduce. Prokaryotes reproduce by binary fission ---------- I knew A was the answer, but I wonder how B isn't a wrong statement. When bacteria reproduce by binary fission, their daughter cells (newly reproduced individual bacteria) contain the exactly same DNA material as their parents. Am I misunderstanding the concept of binary fission?
